The ice castle at Miller Park in Eden Prairie opened Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, with a light show, ice princesses and fire dancers. Built by the same company that constructed a castle two years ago at the Mall of America, it is made with thousands of icicles, and includes arches, ice slides and 20-foot walls. It is open through March 7, weather permitting.
